1.7.0 dev-1280 GSdx32-AVX2 Default Playable, but slow. Mostly full speed at 3x native using D3D11. Extreme artefacting and vertical stripes in hardware mode; must use "Disable Depth Emulation" hack to work around. Also used Aggressive CRC and Half-Pixel Offset at Normal (Vertex) to alleviate a ghosting/outline artefact. Themriron2
